Wrenching Fate

By

Brooklyn Ann


She’s haunted by her past.  He promises her a future...

Akasha Hope trusts no one. Her parents were shot down by uniformed men, which forced her to spend most of her life on the run.

She’s so close to getting out on her own, making her own dreams come true when he shows up and disrupts everything.

Her new legal guardian.

His kindness makes her suspicious, while his heart-stopping good looks arouse desires she’d kept suppressed.

Silas McNaught, Lord Vampire of Coeur d’Alene, has been searching for Akasha for centuries.

He’s perplexed to discover that the woman who has haunted his visions is anything but sweet and fragile. Her foul mouth and superhuman strength covers a tenderness he’s determined to reach.

While government agents pursue Akasha and vindictive vampires seek to destroy Silas, they discover the strength in their love.

Can they survive the double threat?

What did I make of the book?

Akasha Hope isn't like a normal 19-year-old. Akasha has been on the run since she witnessed the brutal murder of her parents when she was a child. She knows not why they were killed, but she knows that if the men who killed her parents find her, then she will die as well. Akasha tried to live off the radar, but life on the streets is challenging for a young child, and eventually she becomes a ward of the state. However, there are no records for an Akasha Hope, so those in charge make their own assumptions, and do not believe her when she tells them her actual age, instead they inform her she is two years younger than she actually is! For now, she will go along with them. It wouldn't be forever, and she would soon put this sorry past behind her and forge a new life for herself. Unfortunately, the unthinkable happens, a stranger offers to become her guardian. Great! Just what she needs.

What Akasha didn't expect was her guardian to be quite so well...young, good-looking, mysterious, yet kind. There must be something wrong with him? But despite her frantic searches in his magnificent house, she can find nothing that says this man is anything but what he says.

So the vampire thing he has going on comes as a bit of a surprise!!

Brooklyn Ann is a skilled storyteller, and I love the paranormal world that she has created. I have read books by this author before so I purposely dedicated an afternoon, in which I would have no interruptions, to read this book! I am so glad I did! Wrenching Fate was a heart-rending, action-packed, tender, brutal, very real in the telling, paranormal story about a vampire who has spent centuries searching for his soul mate, and a troubled young woman who just wants what any woman wants…to be loved and accepted for who she is.

I took to Akasha immediately. She is such a strong woman, who has been through hell and yet, she has the most beautiful soul, that no matter what curveballs life throws at her, she somehow stays forever hopeful.

Likewise, Silas is so compassionate and so caring, not just for Akasha, but for her friends and for humanity as well. He is this powerful vampire, who is the most genuine man you could hope to meet.

Wrenching Fate isn't just another, girl falls in love with a vampire story. This is a wonderful story filled with intrigue, murder, cars and romance. It is certainly on my repeat to read list and I cannot wait to read the rest of the Brides of Prophecy Book series. A superb book.

I Highly Recommend.
